Her devotion to Edward helped bring out his better qualities; after her death, his rule became somewhat arbitrary. Eleanor was the daughter of King Ferdinand III of Castile and his wife, Joan of Ponthieu.
In 1254 Eleanor was married to Lord Edward, son of England's King Henry III. In honour of the event, her half brother, Alfonso X of Castile, transferred to Edward his claims to Gascony. When Henry III's baronial opponents seized power in England in 1264, Eleanor was sent for safety to France; she returned in October 1265, after Edward had crushed the rebels.
Eleanor accompanied Edward on a crusade from 1270 to 1273. The story that she saved his life at Acre (now in Israel) by sucking poison from a dagger wound is evidently apocryphal. After Edward ascended the throne, Eleanor was criticized for allegedly mistreating the tenants on her lands. Upon her death, Edward erected the famous Eleanor Crosses--several of which still stand--at each place where her coffin rested on its way to London.
Eleanor went with Edward on crusade in 1270; they were crowned 19 Aug 1274. She was one of the best-liked queens in British history. Her brother reigned as King Alfonso X (1252-84). "Ancestral Roots..." (Balt., 1992) pp. 110-30 states she d. at Grantham, England. She was age 10 when she married.
